Let there be no doubt how ridiculous this election cycle is (listen):
Marco Rubio is called the “Milk Carton Senator” because he’s no-where to be found when he is supposed to be doing his job. Yet this is who Rush Limbaugh chooses to call a “full-throated conservative”?
However, Rubio did find time to vote for ObamaTrade (TPA), even though he never read it.
He voted in favor of granting President authority to expand immigration levels without Congress’ consent via Trade Promotion Authority. In 2015 Sen. Rubio voted in favor of final passage of Trade Promotion Authority bill, H.R. 1314.
This legislation would set up fast-track procedures for the passage of trade deals negotiated by the president. Although Ambassador Froman, the U.S. Trade Representative, repeatedly assured Members of Congress that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will not include immigration provisions that require the United States to change its laws, the “Living Agreement” provision of TPP means by its very terms that President Obama, or his successor, can change the provisions of the agreement however he chooses with no input whatsoever from Congress and regardless of what TPA instructs.
[…] In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements.
“Let’s be clear,” Rubio said. “Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence.” (link)
So the candidate who rarely votes, but when he does show up votes for ObamaTrade and wants to give legal status to illegal aliens, is a “full-throated conservative”….
….But the candidate who is against ObamaTrade and wants to build a border wall, Donald Trump, is something less.
Let that sink in for a few minutes.
While you’re mulling that new paradigm over, here’s ObamaTrade:
